According to the Lisbon based sports daily, the nineteen-year-old arrived in the Spanish capital late Sunday with Atlético set to pay Benfica 120 million euro.

Benfica's promising striker Joao Félix is in Madrid and poised to sign for Atlético Madrid.

According to Portuguese sports daily, "Record", the 19-year-old is close to signing for the Madrid based side who are set to pay Benfica 120 million euro for his signature with the teenager set to earn a salary of 6 million euro per season.

After breaking through last season in Portugal with Félix netting 15 goals and providing 9 assists in Liga Nos, the striker quickly appeared on the radar with many top European sides interested in securing his services. Manchester City were the other side in the race to sign the teenager but at present everything points to a LaLiga move for the forward. 

The Benfica player has been capped at under-age level for Portugal and finally made his senior debut at the UEFA Nations League last week as Portugal faced Switzerland in Porto.
